* UPDATED 2nd April 2021 * Version History: Vs 24.0 Published 2nd April 2021 - Updated with ZBAD RC details following release of FeelThere Beijing Daxing Airport I try and keep these li

Good day to you all, By popular request (demand!) I have updated the Master List (now Vs 12) to reflect the KRDU RC pack issued last week. @hexzedhas already provided a full description of what i

How about we be patient and just wait until @Pedantic G posts and tells us the new version is ready? Keep in mind this is all volunteer, time consuming, and apparently under appreciated work.   P

Qantas freight is already included under 'Express Freighters' EFA/QE, in the YMML RC pack.

In regards to transferring a livery to the 737, it cannot be done by an end user, not until the next version anyway

Maybe we could suggest to have that changed as they are now known as QANTAS FREIGHT and have an different IACO Code to EFA I think these days, though I could be wrong. Can anyone in game confirm it spawns with QANTAS FREIGHT Livery with these codes or EXPREESS FREIGHTERS livery which would be so outdated?

I guess my only other question is can I put a livery on a B737 if it on a SF30/34 plane? E.g. Regional Express from March next year is going to be flying Boeing 737's as well as there SF30/34's as there fleet.

Only if a combination of airline and aircraft model is already included in one of the published RC packs, you can use that livery for any airport, for that aircraft type, provided you own the RC pack and make the appropriate changes in your RT text files for the airport in question.

That means:
For example, if an American Airlines livery for the B737-800 is included in a RC pack you own, you can use this livery for any flight, if you change the airline IATA code to AA and the aircraft IATA code to 738 (without winglets) or 73H (with winglets) for a flight in the xxxx_schedule.txt.
Then you only have to make sure that the airports used for this flight are contained in the xxxx_airports.txt, the airline (in this example American Airlines) in the xxxx_airlines.txt and the aircraft model (in this example both of the B737-800) in the xxxx_airplanes.txt.

Which liveries are included in the RC packs or which livery in what RC pack(s) are (plus other neat information) can be found out with the help of @Pedantic G's great Master List.

What doesn't work, because it is not compatible is, if you want to display for example an American Airlines B737-800 livery (738 or 73H) on a Tuolev TU-134 (TU3).
An American Airlines livery for a TU3 is not included in any pack and therefore when using the IATA codes AA and TU3 for a flight, a white TU3 without livery would be displayed in the game.

Edit: My answer has basically already been given. I apologize for making this thread unnecessarily long. The forum did not show me the last 4 messages from an hour ago.

Yep, pretty much what EliGrim said as well and I forgot about the airports.txt file as well.

Basically unless your RC exists in a RC manifest , the airplane is in the airplane.txt file, the airline is in the airline.txt file, the airport is in the airport.txt file and your schedule is in the correct format your flying ducks will stay non flying! Clear as mud really 😬

So I got a white plane with this:

PER,MEL,737,QC,7393,00:45,00:00,1,QE

But a change to this:

PER,MEL,737,QE,7393,00:45,00:00,1,QE should solve that issue with the livery of QANTAS FREIGHT appearing and looking like something similar like this posted earlier:

Yes it has the Qantas freight livery displayed similar to this one

https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9945639

So to change how ATC Announces it on Departure/Arrival e.g. "Airline Name" Flight Number. Currently it would say EXPRESS FREIGHT 7393. But to change it to announce to say QANTAS FREIGHT 7393, I presume I just change this in the airline.txt file from: 

EFA, QE, EXPRESS FREIGHT, Express Freighters Australia, Australia

to

EFA, QE, QANTAS FREIGHT, Qantas Freight Australia, Australia

Can someone confirm this theory and if that would mean it be a QANTAS FREIGHT Livery plane and will also be announced as Qantas Freight on Arrival/Departure.

Any confirmation on this would be appreciated 🙂

Almost but not quite there yet!

1. You can change the call sign in the airlines. txt file to what you want so that will work 👍🏽

2. However, this will not work PER,MEL,737,QE,7393,00:45,00:00,1,QE as there is no B737_QE in the RC (look at my spreadsheet). 

The only QE planes are:

B733_qe    YMML    texpack_19    qe    Express Freighters Australia
B734_qe    YMML    texpack_19    qe    Express Freighters Australia
 

Therefore you will need to amend the 737 to 733 or 734 for it to show up in livery otherwise it will be in white. Also for info, they are also the window freighters as they were before the new non-window version of cargo planes were introduced by NygeresDesign and have not been updated

ALSO for info in your example unless you have a departure prior to the arrival time of 00:45 it will not spawn until the first departure of the day is scheduled as that's the way the game works

So finally I got it working and should be good going from here 🙂

Just a few suggestions:

VIRGIN AUSTRALIA CARGO needs to be added.

A330-300 and a few Boeing need to be both added to the Cargo fleet with liveries for QANTAS FREIGHT alongside with BaE cargo planes and VIRGIN CARGO PLANES.

When is the next update to the game due? where users will be able to add liveries in the game.

Kind Regards and Thanks! to all for the help 🙂

Well I hope it got updated realistic graphics and everything stays the same from this version. Just we can add liveries etc. Still can create our own custom real-life shedules etc. Any idea of when it going to be released or what it be called? 😁

Ok, So was trying to test run making the QATAR AIRWAYS plane in the schedule spawn as the Airbus A350-1000 351 at YMML. Seems to make the game not load any help would be grateful? 

ARRIVAL: DOH,MEL,351,QR, 904,18:20,00:00,1,QR

DEPARTURE: MEL,DOH,351,QR, 905,00:00,22:30,1,QR

I added this also via copy and paste from the airplanes.txt file from KFDW:

A35K-351-AIRBUS INDUSTRIE A350-1000               -WIDE BODY JET 

and pasted it into the airplanes.txt file for YMML

Have I done something wrong?
